This series is open to studio teachers, public school teachers, conductors and pedagogy students. A Teacher Workshop will follow each Master Class, in which Peabody Preparatory students perform. Each year, a different set of topics will be explored.

Each session will include Peabody Preparatory student performers of a variety of levels unless a level for the class is specified.  We will integrate work on the session topic into the music the student is performing to help integrate their technical and musical practice and understanding.
